About this deal

A few of the characters Elizabeth talks to regarding her mother and family history are really kind of jerks. IRISH INDEPENDENT 'It's a sad and lovely book, brimful of tenderness and compassion, where the revelations of the past upturn the perceptions of the present.

Patricia is a bit lonely and when her friend pushes her to put an ad in a farmer's magazine she ends up starting correspondence with a man named Edward Foley. I had a couple of “eye roll” moments with this book, and I noticed several detail oversights, but this was an excellent read for me. It’s a sad and lovely book, brimful of tenderness and compassion, where the revelations of the past upturn the perceptions of the present. Alternating between "Now" and "Then" storylines, the backstory is revealed, and we see the connection between "now" and "then". Don't even get me started on why we get a separate POV for Rosemary, it wasn't necessary and added nothing to the story.Meanwhile her 17 year old son back in NYC makes long lasting decisions that impact both his and Elizabeth's lives. I enjoyed both eras of this story, journeying along with Elizabeth while she balanced uncovering her family history with a family drama in the present. The side characters - I could have done with more information on the family feud with Elizabeth, her aunt, uncle, and cousin. She was a chess piece to move around while he focused on what he wanted the story to be about, Patricia.

He then secured a prime time slot on Channel 4 with his chat shows So Graham Norton and V Graham Norton. I've not yet read Norton's first novel but it got good reviews, so when I was given the chance to read this as an ARC, I went for it. I tend to wait at least a day after finishing a book to post a review, but I am highly annoyed right now and just want to put this book behind me. The book was originally issued with a clear plastic cover which I assumed it was still in from the photo. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).In this narrative that goes back and forth in time, Patricia's life is slowly revealed as to how she ended up being a confirmed spinster and life long devoted single mother to her beloved daughter, Elizabeth.
